About Céline Dion
Early childhood and rapid success
She showed musical capabilities since the early childhood, and parents actively developed them, arranging her performances in a family piano bar. At 12 Celine has shown a composer talent, having written her own song. This song played a fatal role in her destiny. One of Celine's brothers decided to send the record to the famous producer Rene Angelil. From this point, the musical career of a future famous singer began.
Later the producer Rene Angelil remembered that he had been struck with the voice of the girl. To write down the first album of Céline, he sold the house. Practically right after the release of the album, Céline became well known. At first, in her native Quebec, and a bit later – far beyond its limits, having won a gold medal at a musical festival in Japan where the producer has taken her.
By 90s, the star was ready for a new take-off. Updated Celine debuted in the English-language market with the disk "Unison". The track "Where Does My Heart Beat Now" became her first song, which has got to the American chart Billboard Hot 100. Now not only the power of her voice struck, but also different genres of her vocal art – from rock to classics. In 1991, she took Oscar for "The Beast and the Beauty” song. In 1992, Celine Dion was called the new superstar in America.
The disk "Falling into You" (1996) has received the best comments for Dion's career. The international federation of producers of soundtracks has certified it as 9 times platinum — an award which has been given to only two other
albums in the history, one of which is Dion's album too — "Let’s Talk About Love."
One more Oscar
In the end of the 20th century, Celine Dion’s fame grew at huge rates. For this decade she repeatedly got prestigious awards, her disks were sold by million circulations, and three times she has been entitled as "the most sold singer of the world". Celine Dion has celebrated the end of the millennium in figure of 100 million albums sold, the receipt of several most prestigious national awards and one more Oscar for "My Heart Will Go On" from the movie "Titanic".
